Three reasons we recommend "KDDI Powered Ethernet"

  1. 1Excellent reliability -- Highest availability rate in Japan at over 99.999%
  2. 2One-stop solution from backbones to access lines -- Cooperation with local networks of national utility-based telecommunications carriers
    KDDI cooperates totally and closely with the local networks of national utility-based telecommunications carriers to offer one-stop solutions from backbone circuits and relay networks to access lines. Thorough support both when introducing Intranet services and in the event of failure, you can safely leave your business backbones to KDDI.
  3. 3Flexible response -- High level of freedom both at introduction and reconfiguration, and extensibility according to use
    In contrast to conventional networks which are linearly connected to PLC, KDDI's VPN multipoint-to-multipoint connection assures a high level of freedom, whether it is being introduced or reconfigured.
    KDDI Powered Ethernet can be used in conjunction not only with IP, but with a variety of protocols such as IPX, SNA, FNA, DEC and AppleTalk. Since it is also possible to use routing protocols such as RIP, OSPF and EIGRP, it can flexibly and extensively deal with network changes. The service displays daily, weekly and monthly graphs of traffic fluctuations by base. Extensions can be made according to use.
    With ample options such as the "Dual Access Service" that provides redundant access lines and the "Free Gateway Service" that offers a free gateway connection for IP-VPN, KDDI has realized the optimum wide area Ethernet to meet customers' needs.
